Ban-Koe, myHRcounsel Partnership Addresses Compliance

Compliance is a huge issue for businesses these days. And it is not a destination. Instead, it’s a multi-faceted and every-changing journey.

Business and workforce compliance are only getting more complicated with many rules under ERISA, HIPAA, ACA, FMLA, ADA, sick leave laws, changes to EEOC and OSHA requirements.

“As a business grows, the web of laws and regulations to which it is subject becomes increasingly complex,” notes CBR. “Human resources laws governing the employer-employee relationship comprise a significant part of this regulatory burden. While larger corporations generally have HR departments and teams of attorneys ensuring that they avoid infractions, small businesses often lack these resources and therefore run the risk of unintentionally violating the law. However, the cost of failing to comply with HR laws is substantial for businesses of all sizes: employers may face state and federal penalties and leave themselves vulnerable to litigation.”

To help businesses more easily address compliance, Ban-Koe Companies and myHRcounsel have joined forces. By coming together in this way they’re able to provide a broader portfolio of solutions to address business compliance requirements. Having the right tools and advisers is essential to navigate these complicated employment laws, the companies note.

Ban-Koe Systems provides workforce management and workplace security solutions including Time Accounting, Human Resources, Advanced Scheduling, Access Control, Visitor Management and other offerings. Thousands of organizations worldwide use these solutions.

myHRCounsel provides counsel and a legal resource library. The myHRcounsel HR Concierge Service delivers counsel and important current documentation to the HR and legal functions of business clients. Through myBIZcounsel, myHRcounsel offers legal contract drafts, reviews, and edits.

The company adds that while some other workforce management companies are staffed by non-lawyers. But, it says, myHRcounsel is not one of those. It provides legal advice on which clients can rely, it says, and legal documents they can use – minus disclaimers and warnings followed by a referral to an hourly lawyer. These resources are available on-call and on-line seven days a week for a low monthly per employee per month fee.
